NEW DELHI: RSS "imposes" its views and no one in BJP including Prime Minister Narendra Modi can oppose them, Rahul Gandhi today told a closed door meeting of the two-day national executive of Youth Congress, which concluded here today.

The Congress Vice President also took a swipe at the government over the land bill issue saying the NDA government had to allow the Ordinance to lapse as it had tried to force its way on the issue without consuslting stakeholders and claimed that on the contrary the Congress had brought the 2013 land law after thorough consultations, the sources said.

Gandhi also hailed the Youth Congress workers for their agitation saying they kept up the pressure forcing the government to withdraw the land ordinance.

Responding to a question by a Youth Congress worker on the concluding day of the event, Gandhi is learnt to have said,"the RSS always imposes. BJP always follows their views. BJP cannot go against the RSS. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi cannot".

Gandhi, who spoke on organizational matters during the meeting also told the Youth Congress workers that the future leadership in Congress at the Centre and states will emerge from the youth body of the party, the sources said.

The two-day national executive meet, which was not accessible for the media, saw a thorough discussion on the performance of various state units of Youth Congress and the future ahead for the organization.

It also discussed the plans for next six months of Youth Congress, which has for some time, been quite active in organizing agitations on various issues.

After the meeting was over, the Youth Congress decided to organize a protest outside the residence of Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad for the government's decision to discontinue postal stamps on Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.

Escalating its attack on the Centre on it, Congress today demanded an apology from it saying Modi overnment's entire argument of all stamps being about just one family is "nothing but an oxymoron".
